MARIA SINGLETON . I am the wife of Edward Singleton; we work for Mr. Lloyd in the Commercial-road. I sent my little boy out with these trousers, and he came back and said the person in my house had got them.

Cross-examined by MR. PHILLIPS. Q. Have you not known her some time? Q. Yes, these twenty years; her husband has deserted her, and she has been rather distressed in her mind - I never knew her guilty of any bad act before.

JAMES SINGLETON . My mother sent me with two pairs of trousers to Mr. Lloyd; when I got to the top of Cross-street, Mrs. Batley asked me to let her hold my bundle, while I went to a house to ask for Mr. Batley - when I came out she was gone with the bundle.

FRANCIS JACKSON . I took up the prisoner and found a duplicate of the trousers on her.

ROBERT LINWOOD . I am a pawnbroker. The prisoner pawned these trousers with me.(Property produced and sworn to.)
